The ship is Celebrity Century, cost is $999, I don't know the taxes yet. Its for 15 days and stops 6 times in Mexico,Guatemala,Costa Rico,Panama and Colombia. I live in Colorado but will probably drive from my winter home in Mexico to San Diego. Do you live in Calif.and have you taken other cruises.

hey robert: taxes are like $300 - 400 (for canal passage) on top of cruise price. i'll tell'ya upfront, i've got a dog [rex] who comes with me. i'll shoulder the extra charges for him if there are any, but i wanted to be straight with you--'cuz a dog might be a deal-breaker for some folks.

to your questions: i'm stationed in california (long beach) and nope, i never been on a cruise before--but i'd like to take several in the next year. it would be good to find a bud for trips and cutting out the singles' supplements + kinda show me the ropes (or not, if you're only lookin to share a rack & head. straight & white here, considerate non-smoker--i don't drink unless it's free; even then, i'm a lightweight.

anyhow, let me know if rex the dog is a deal breaker--if not, you/me can go from there. seems like there are a lot of good deals. i have good flexibility with time/location -- but like to keep my total daily expenses down if possible. don't know if this pc cruise would work, because (until my civilian passport comes--mid/late november) i need to go in/out of the same u.s port (r/t san diego; r/t ft lauderdale, etc) but after my pp comes, i can go anywhere, that i can pay for.

you been on a cruise before? how does having a vacation home in mexico work out for you? close to the water, etc. name's chandler.

ps: if you wanna hit me direct (without going through the message board) e-dress is SoCalGringo@gmail.com.

Panama cruise
 
Hello Chandler, sorry but I have a little problem with hairy critters ( dogs and cats ) after a day or two I get watery eyes and runny nose. Mexico is great, I have been there every winter for 16 years. I go there to get away from the bad winters in colorado. I live about 2 blocks from the beach lots of great people, fishing and kayaking. Good luck on your search for a cruise mate. Robert
